Kudos to this video by Darren Draper.
Kudos because this is the way that staff developers should be developing staff.
I daresay this one video over e-mail will do more to motivate staff and get them talking than an hour of being “preached to” about Web 2! Using Web 2 to teach Web 2 – what a novel idea!?
It is powerful and amazing. (Thanks to Julie Lindsay for pointing it out over at Twitter.)
Staff developers — are you encouraging your staff to make videos such as this? Is staff development stuck in Web 1 or is it modeling Web 2 as it teaches Web 2.
Darren, you have made me think! Wow! Do you blog?
